How much startup is in your PhD? Take your career into your own hands in the Young Entrepreneurs in Science Workshop. Develop potential startup ideas together with other PhDs and postdocs of all disciplines, network with real-life sciencepreneurs, and learn about career options after the PhD. Our innovation coaches will help you to discover the potential of your research by building your first prototype. Participation grants you a personalised certificate and exclusive access to our online network for scientists.
Day 1: From PhD to Sciencepreneur Discover what it means to be an entrepreneur, explore your entrepreneurial strengths, and meet our experienced role models, who will share their failures and successes.
Day 2: The Design Thinking Process Learn and apply the Design Thinking principles to refine ideas for potential products. We will explore the concepts of empathy and human-centred design, and create a prototype for the final presentation.
